Day 72: Halifax and Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia

From the Fundy Coast we continued into Nova Scotia...

We've gotten pretty good at getting these welcome sign photos while passing at 60+ mph or 100k in this case.

After a quick stop in Moncton to get some Canadian cash, we headed over to Halifax.  We entered town via the MacDonald Bridge.

Halifax is another city we need to add to our revisit list.  We're going to have to plan another trip that is geared towards visiting all these great cities where we're just scratching the surface.

We did take a couple of hours to unload the bikes and ride the waterfront.  But before we could do that, we had to go purchase some helmets since they have helmet laws up here.  Probably for the best.

Saw several beautiful charter boats out sailing...

And this little guy "Theodore Too".  A full-size replica of the story book tug boat Theodore.

An interesting article about the differences between how Canadians and Americans see the War of 1812. While Americans see the war as producing our national anthem, Canadians see it as a savior from our politics!

After Halifax, we headed a little ways out of town to Peggy's Cove.  Another fishing village seemingly frozen in time.

With the obligatory lighthouse!
This is one of our favorites.

We're on the east coast but the point at Peggy's Cove faces back west so we got to enjoy this great sunset!
